At the beach, Rimes gets into holiday spirit with CD, tour

Friday, July 11, 2014 – Dressed in a skimpy black bikini and a parka sitting on a beach surrounded by three elves, LeAnn Rimes took to YouTube to announce the "ONE Christmas" tour and the release of a six-song EP.

Rimes sits on the beach in the humorous video, singing over the action to announce the cities and a special event in New York City, which was not disclosed.

This is the first chapter of three Christmas albums Rimes plans to release over consecutive holiday seasons. "ONE Christmas - chapter 2" will be released in 2015 with "ONE Christmas - chapter 3" in 2016.

"I love everything about the holidays," said Rimes, "and want to share the magic and joy of the season with my fans. I look forward to playing some of my favorite Christmas classics for music lovers in an intimate, cozy setting."

The six song EP is produced by Rimes and Darrell Brown and includes:
1. Silent Night Holy Night
2. I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas
3. Blue Christmas
4. Someday at Christmas
5. Hard Candy Christmas
6. White Christmas

CD review - One Christmas Chapter 1 LeAnn Rimes hasn't always been the most consistent album maker over the years, but there's no questioning the quality of her singing. Here gospel-y version of "Silent Night" on this Christmas EP, "One Christmas: Chapter," is truly a thing of beauty. Then when she sings a slow, soulful "Blue Christmas," which features that beautiful yodel in her voice, it should remind you of that wonderful Patsy Cline quality in her early recordings. ...
CD review - Spitfire Say what you will about the vocal chops of today's leading ladies of country - Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill or Martina McBride chief among them - but LeAnn Rimes is hands down, no doubt about it the best female vocalist in country music today.
